Lucie Loves… #WestLDN // Autumn/winter shopping at Westfield London and some very pretty finds!
I was invited by Westfield London to check out their big west letters and then challenged to find an outfit to match!
Undaunted by my task, and armed with a £150 giftcard, I set about scouring some of my favourite stores: Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Zara, and Cos, looking for pieces that would make my wardrobe’s transition from spring/summer to autumn/winter, as painless as possible.
Next I moved on to Cos - I love this store! It’s such a pleasure to shop in. It’s all colour coordinated, so you can find things really easily! I spotted this very beautiful raw-cut pale blue wool coat hanging on the rail.
My next stop was one of my all-time favourite go-to places. Topshop. The store at Westfield London is pretty generously sized and is full of new autumn/winter goodies! I picked out a few pale blue and mint green pieces to try on for size and an amazing printed kimono to throw on over the top. I paired a pale blue casual chambray shirt with a floral print pleated midi skirt to create a look that I would wear to work.
The wheel lace crop dress in mint was very pretty too, but quite summery, so I wasn’t sure how much wear I would get out of it. The fantasy print kimono of the other hand is something that I would wear all year round. I love the bold pattern and autumnal hues and it also looks fab worn over the two-tone lace midi dress. I opted for the midi dress as it’s a flattering length and will do perfectly for my friend’s wedding.
After picking up a couple of pieces in Topshop, and these magic zip-front boots. I then popped into Zara to try on an embroidered mustard yellow dress. It first caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when my friend Sophie and I went to the Zara store in Chelsea. I decided that it absolutely needed to come with me on my birthday trip to Paris and bought it immediately.
So, all in all, a pretty successful shopping trip and colour coordinated to match the #westldn sign! I can’t recommend heading to Westfield London on a Friday evening enough! It’s so much quieter than going at the weekend and there are practically no queues. Bliss!
